Last of the Zinnias...


By kkveal


Well I cut the last of my Zinnias last night. I get them cut the same way every year. “This is the absolutely last time I’m going to cover my flowers this year!” With the porch light glowing, I make my way to the Zinnia bed, being careful not to step on the new beauties I have planted this year. Standing tall and brave in my favorite vase they are the reminder of why I cover my flowers every fall, and why I always wish for an early spring.

Thank you ever so, Gardenscaper.
